Opening of Tarakwa School’s new buildings – April 2019, Kenya

Under its’ Education Pillar, BAPS Charities commenced support for Tarakwa High School, Bomet, Kenya in a phased approach beginning in 2014. In April 2019, the latest Library building was opened at the site in the presence of several local dignitaries, the school’s management, and BAPS Charities Kenya representatives.

Phase 1: In 2014 BAPS Charities embarked on building the 1st Classroom. The classroom construction was completed in approximately 2 months and can seat 40 students. To promote the livelihoods of the local community the labor was fully employed from nearby town centers.

Phase 2: In 2015, after successfully completing the 1st Classroom, BAPS Charities embarked on building 2 more classrooms. The 2 classrooms were completed in approximately 3 months and can seat 80 students.

Phase 3: In 2017/2018, a library was built above the 2 classrooms built in 2015 which greatly enhances the learning environments available for the students. The inauguration ceremony was held in 2017 in the presence of H.H Mahant Swami Maharaj and Hon. Fred Matiang’i (Cabinet secretary for Ministry of Education, Science and Technology). The final onsite opening of the library was then carried out in April 2019.
